"As both a teacher and parent at Ballancrest Academy, I can truly say that this is a quality education. Professionally, I love the science based curriculum which allows my students to explore a variety of topics in a hands on manner. They really enjoy the literature that coincides with this curriculum, and have become very fond of reading. Also, I appreciate the flexibility that we are allowed in our lesson plans, so that I can put to practice the age appropriate tasks of individual leaners. Having the freedom to really seize those teachable moments is one of my favorite parts of this job! As a parent of a toddler who is enrolled here at Ballancrest, I would trust none other than these incredible woman and men! They have guided me through the first year of my son's life with such ease and support, all the while working one on one with him as he accomplished milestone after exciting milestone! The overall feeling here at Ballancrest Academy is one of love, support and pride. From the lessons planned with each student in mind by the teachers, to the lifelong friendships that are fostered among the families, this is truly an exceptional experience for your child!" - Lead Teacher and Parent, 2011-Present
"Ballancrest Academy has been a wonderful school for our three children. The staff and teachers in every room are very caring and attentive. We have been so impressed with the curriculum and topics covered, and have enjoyed hearing our children tell us about the new things they are learning every day. The teachers are clearly passionate about educating their classes, and material is presented in creative ways to capture attention and encourage creativity. Thanks to Ballancrest we are confident that our 4 year old will be more than prepared for kindergarten next year, and our younger two have a safe and fun place to continue to grow." - Ballancrest Aulmni Parent Since 2010, B.K.
"Ballancrest Academy is an exceptional school with a focus on the child's well-being and learning. I visited various daycares in the area looking for the right fit for my daughter two years ago and Ballancrest stood out because of the intimate setting and flexible curriculum that outlines developmental milestones and features accompanying assessments. We wanted our daughter to develop and learn, but we also wanted her to be a kid. Our little girl has flourished and is learning so much from the caring teachers that are using best practice teaching methods, basic manners and how to socialize with their peers, teachers and the various community leaders they engage with to make learning fun for the kids (i.e. firefighters). We recently enrolled our son into the infant room, I can tell the teachers genuinely care for our baby. Ballancrest has taken the care of our children a step further and hired a chef that is focused on the children's nutrition, she experiments with various recipes to expand the children's horizon on food and provide them the very best. The teachers and administrators at Ballancrest pour their energy and love into making sure our kids are well taken care of every single day." - Ballancrest Parent, 2018-Present
